Woodside Stallions Dominate 2YO Features
Woodside Park Stud had plenty to celebrate last weekend with the outstanding win of Written Tycoon’s son, Written By in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes in Melbourne, and Zoustar's daughter Sunlight extending her winning streak when landing the Group 2 Silver Slipper in Sydney. Written By’s Blue Diamond victory was simply outstanding with the Grahame Begg-trained colt thrashing a high-quality field in Victoria’s richest and most prestigious 2YO event. "It would be incredible for Woodside Park Stud if we had Zoustar’s Sunlight and Written Tycoon’s Written By going head to head in the Golden Slipper," Woodside Park Stud’s Matt Tillett said. "The current Two-Year-Old Sire tables have just been released, and there is Zoustar and Written Tycoon, one – two. It’s a brilliant achievement for Woodside Park Stud and for the Victorian breeding industry." With the Woodside Park Stud yearlings having arrived at Oaklands, and with 47 Written Tycoon’s and 38 Zoustar’s catalogued in this weekend's Inglis Premier Sale, these results are not only good timing for the stud but also brilliant for their loyal breeders. "This crop being offered was Woodside Park Stud’s breakthrough year, when we had Zoustar at $40,000 and Written Tycoon at $18,000. It was the first time the larger, commercial breeders had put faith in us and we are looking forward to them reaping the rewards," Tillett said.
